The "Velvet Underground Appreciation Society" review: "Great CD box set from Australia from Raven. They put our pal, the great DejaVUer Dominico Molumby on the case to assemble a legal, licensed comprehensive collection of VU, hits, rarities at al. So he worked 2+ years and tracked down a mono tape of the first album, the closet mix tape from the third, rare live tracks, rare studio tracks. Dom also wrote a fine history/discog of the band. And the results are tremendous. The 'Hits'/best songs are here, but so are the crucial rarities : 8 mono tracks from the 1st LP (the upcoming Polygram box is using the stereo mix of the 1st LP), unreleased live music, flexis, many surprises. It's chock full of what we need on CD, with great liner booknotes. This is released only in Australia, and rare and expensive elsewhere. Even with the Polygram box set looking strong, this is a necessary companion piece done with love by a fan. Go get it."
